Whistles and Wedding Bells
By Mel Kong
Heartiest congratulations to the first girl from the founding team of Cobra Venom to get hitched! One of our brave beauties from the backs, Anis Zakaria, tied the knot with her beau of 8 years, Zaim Zamani in a grand celebration at the Empire Hotel Subang on 27 February 2016.
Formidable as always, Anis didn’t let marriage plans get in the way of her dedication to the team. The nikah ceremony was conveniently timed to take place on 22 February 2016, right after she came back from playing for Cobra Venom at the PITKM Cawangan Sabah-MRU Women’s Rugby 10s tournament in KK that happened on 19 and 20 February 2016.
When asked about what her future plans are with respect to juggling rugby and life as a married woman, Anis shared, “Being married is never about being locked down; it is about sharing our lives together. There is nothing to juggle as I see no obstructions from being married to play rugby”.
